Washington ready for Independence Bowl

Georgia Tech quarterback Tevin Washington said he has been preparing as if he will start against Air Force in the Independence Bowl on Dec. 27 in Shreveport, La.

Coach Paul Johnson practically put to rest on Thursday any chance that Joshua Nesbitt had of returning from his broken arm to play in the Dec. 27 bowl game.

“I hoped that he would get a chance to play,” Washington said. “That was a hard way to go down as a senior. But I have to prepare the same way.”

Washington, a redshirt sophomore, has played well since Nesbitt’s injury in the Nov. 4 game at Virginia Tech. He is averaging 54.7 rushing yards and 53.7 passing yards per game. But in games he has started, he is averaging 96.3 rushing yards and 97.3 passing yards.

Okay, now I feel like a real loser with that “first” crap!

Sucks for JN being a senior and all. I’m pleased with TW’s play – he got better each start. Weird irony, but JN’s injury was just GT’s seasons of bad “breaks”. IMO, many games this season could’ve gone better had a simple break occured FOR the Jackets instead of against.

Oh well, it is what it is. Win the Bowl Game, and begin prep for 2011!

Go Jackets! Happy Holidays to all!!

It’s hilarious seeing comments when Georgia fans told Sanford to shut up, that he was annoying them. I guess being a moron doesn’t make everyone like you.

I wonder if anyone from GT athletic dept lobbied for the SAN Fran Bowl on Jan 9th? It would have been similar playing Nevada who beat Boise St with a similar offense. Guess not….Nesbitt deserved that effort with all he has done for GT. Nothing against Tevin, just hate it for Josh.

TW has done a good job taking over for Joshua. Keep it up TW. Its time we won a bowl game. By the way, tell CPJ that you can throw good passes and tell your receivers
to put some glue on their gloves. Good Luck.

Tevin Washington came in the Va Tech game with the lead…. and blew it. He was then blown out (badly) at home against a bad Miami Team lacking their starting QB. Then Duke (yes, Duke) gave him a run for his money. Then UGA gave him (and Tech) one of their “9 times a decade” spankings.

Yeah…. As a UGA Student I LOVE Tevin!!

When will the TevinWashingron4Heisman.com campaign start??

Good lord Sanford Drive. Are you so unproductive in your life that you have nothing better to do than to flame AJC blogs. I’d like to see a topic actually stay on damn topic once.
What may have been funny once or twice is now annoying and limits any kind of intelligent debate. And before you give me the “other folks are doing it” YOU are the one annoying both sides of the UGA/GT blog.
Give it a damn rest already since the AJC obviously won’t moderate their own boards like every other board gets moderated on the internet. You are annoying and childish and need to just stop making UGA fans look like baffoons

Sanford Drive!

how can u say a QB blew the games when he did his job! others around him did not!

how does Washington blow a lead?? do u know anything about football? The D blew it and our special teams! It was his first game ever against a BCS team so yeahhhh and he tied the game up! Miami has a strong D and once again most of that fell on the D’s shoulders! So next time u talk about Tech on a TECH blog know what the hell u are talking about! And UGA didnt not kill us….. we rushed for 410 yards so im pretty sure uga has their own problems at 6-6 :)

Confused asks, “what does 42-34 mean”

There’s a story about it that the Techies do not like to talk about, Confused.

In November 2008, the Nerds from Norve Ave beat UGA in football for the only time in the last DECADE (10 years), 45-42. After said game, they would flood every blog on the AJC, UGA or not, Tech or not, bombarding the comment section with “45-42 hahahahahaha”, among other simply annoying mouth thrashings aimed toward upsetting the UGA fanbase.

Well, it worked. During their year of glory, they successfully instilled as much HATE into most UGA fans hearts as Tech has had toward UGA for all of time. Since they annyed the living s____ out of us for that year, they are getting the treatment they dished out, 10 fold. They deserve every bit of it. UGA beat Tech “42-34″ this year, so the constant score you see is a reminder that they are the JV team in the State of Georgia.

I cannot tell you how much fun it is to see the Nerds get upset, and act like reminding them of a final score in a rivalry game as a means of bragging rights is the most classless and demeaning thing a soul could do. So as long as it upsets them, I will contine to dish out the same tratment they gave us.

It’s a double edged sword Techies. You hate us, and we HATE you too.

42-34 hahahahahahha
To Hell with Georgia Tech

@Sanford Drive: Huh? Spanking? I think most UGA fans watching the game were sweating it out in the closing minutes against our 2nd string QB, especially when Richt got duped into scoring that last TD…

Tevins numbers are as good, if not better than Nesbitt’s. Tough way for Joshua to go out, but he is going and Tevin is arriving. I hope CPJ let’s him throw more, especially to backs on curl routes out of the backfield.

Give it up Tech fans, you cannot insult an idiot, nor can you reason with a mental cripple such as Sanford drive. Just ignore the dumb A@@. He will go away if no one responds to his idiotic ramblings. Watch if no one sends a message he will respond to himself with another comment. This is a sign of lunacy. Hey Doug, you like this childless stuff that Sanford is throwing out? Must be because you allow it to go on.

Obama won the tax cut debate. Yeah, like he is Ronald Reagan all of a sudden. HE was STOMPED and come January when the new Congress convenes The TEAPARTY WILL OWN HIM.

UGA and Richt “were duped into scoring the TD in the GT” game, Yeah, like 8 points made it a closer game. GT kids ………………8 IS a larger number to LOSE by than 1.

GT fans live in this lil alternative universe that they create …………… losing by 8 IS better and that Ethel St really IS a safe place to live and that losing 9 out of 10 games to Mark Richt is a sign that GT is getting better and that CPJ is fabulous in comparison and that UGA ’s gorgeous women love to marry GT men. That is a dream created by nerds.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

IS GT going to finally win a bowl???? CPJ cannot win a bowl game.

As usual the scum is dripping off of the lower class mutts. TW will be ready and do fine. Hoping Josh will some how get a chance to at least play a series in the game.

By definition

December 18th, 2010
9:33 am

A football game is usually won, by definition, by the team who scores the most points. Indeed in my lifetime, while in HS, we played in some regional playoff games and in the event of a tie at the end of regulation time, the team with the best stats like first downs, total yds would win. Penetration rules would win out.

In the UGA GT game there were no such penetration rules in place. GT had about 1,300 yds in O and 34 passing yds. AHAHAHAHAHAHA

UGA scored 8 more than GT (even to this day poor CPJ thinks 8 makes him look smarter than a loss by 1) and so by any definition ………….UGA won and won for the 9th time in 10 games.

Not even close is the sad lil GT game with UGA. Oh, if you go off on the UGA – Florida series to make you nerds feel better …………………we ALSO OWN them over the entire series.

By the way, regarding Nesbitt’s bowl memories ……………..he has zlich. GT has lost ALL of them in his pathetic era. CPJ and bowls? Same stat ……………..loser he is.

Man, CPJ was really wanting to bolt in the event of the Mullen to Florida thing. Man, he wanted that MSU job. He actually thought that he would get it. Waddaya mean that Mullen is not off to U of F?? @%$#@

Poor guy.

Give them hell Washinton. These kid deserves the start and I hate it for Josh, but it is time to look at the future for GT. Washington really has to impress if he wants this starting position next year. This whole team needs to play with some serious motivation and go out with a win. I am taking nothing away from Air Force I respect what those kids do and are going to do with thier futures, but I really want to see the defense play lights out and get some 3 and outs and the offense to hold on to the damn ball and run it down thier throats.

Tevin’s rushing/passing numbers are deceiving. As the leader on offense, it is his job to get touchdowns. Ave. points per game under Tevin are down by 10 points. He is not sustaining drives into the end zone….

superDumb, does your ignorance know no limits? I ALWAYS feel dumber for the experience of reading your post!

By definition, …….WHAT?! Have you EVER been confused as superDawg? Yes, uga won the game. In fact, you are correct in stating that uga has the overall win/loss record against us. I’m not sure WHY you pup fans don’t understand CPJ’s desire to let ya’ll score…I don’t know how many times explaining it will help…does this help? “Bark, bark! Bow wow…yelp, yelp, yelp”. One question; WHY, if uga is so great, do they have half the national championship trophies as Tech? Nice little collection of wins, though.

For people who constantly brag about how smart and brilliant they are, Techies sure do have some short memories. I mean, 2008 isn’t exactly ancient history. We all remember very vividly how obnoxious and unbearable Techies were after 45-42. All you have to do is dig up some old AJC blogs to see some of the absolutely assinine things that they were saying. Now Sanford Drive harmlessly posts the most recent final score and Techies get all up in arms like he slapped their mom in the face. They start running their mouths about “class” and act all high and mighty like they’ve never ran their fat mouths about UGA. I have never seen a bigger effing joke of a fan base in all my life. You idiots have no integrity or credibility. Brace yourself for a long and excruciating off season Techies. You’ve earned every minute of it.

macroroni and cheese,

We get it. Paul Johnson let us score so you could get the ball back. We know how it worked.

But you Nerds make it VERY easy to make fun of you for thinking that bush-league move gave you the best Moral Victory in the history of College Football. It’s amusing as all heck to listen to you talk about how Paul Johnson is a “genius”…… for telling his team to QUIT.

42-34 to you is better than 35-34

Congrats on the Moral Victory. We will settle with the Game Victory.
